Product Details

LG 42" Black LED 1080P HDTV, Model 42LN5400

Getting the superior image quality of an LED TV doesn't have to be an expensive affair, thanks to the LG 42LN5400 LED TV. Part of the LG 5400 series, this 42-inch LED TV takes advantage of technologies from more advanced sets, and puts them into a model perfect for the average user looking for a great viewing experience.

The heart of the 42LN5400 is the LED backlit panel, featuring a full HD 1080p picture. LED backlighting produces a picture with better brightness and colors than a traditional LCD television, so your favorite movies will have clarity like never before. LG's proprietary Triple XD Engine helps reduce noise and increase contrast, for cinema-like picture quality. For sports fans and gamers, TruMotion 120Hz technology greatly reduces motion blur, keeping the picture sharp when the onscreen action speeds up.

LG understands that some people just want to enjoy watching TV, without worrying about tech specs or fiddling with settings. To that end, the 42LN5400 LED TV comes equipped with Picture Wizard II, a simple on-screen calibration system. This easy-to-use feature uses images and diagrams to guide you through a calibration process, giving you the best picture output without needing a PhD in technology. An LG SIMPLINK connection lets your other LG devices communicate via a single cable, allowing easy system integration and control. And because it's ENERGY STAR qualified, the LG 42LN5400 can end up saving you money compared to an older TV.

I am very much enjoying this TV after 3 weeks of viewing. The picture quality and settings are excellent, and the menus, simple. The built-in audio is pretty poor, however, and that has required some significant adjustment for the set this unit is replacing. For watching the news, it's fine, but for any other viewing, I run the sound through my AV receiver, which sadly, wipes out any benefit to be gained from the energy efficiency provided by the LCD-LED screen. I would not recommend this unit if it is to be "stand alone."

Picture was really nice and sharp. Speaker tone was bad, very mid-range-ish, but after ten days of normal use (nights, weekend) the power shut off. I tried unplugging waiting and repluging, but the pilot light would come on for about ten seconds and shut off again. new unit too..it was made a month before I bought it. I returned it to the store and purchased a different brand

Great picture

from Warwickshire, United Kingdom

Pros

  • easy to use

Cons

    Best Uses

      After reading other reviews I was shocked to find almost everyone had the exact same problem at the same time, two years after purchase (!) the screen goes black suddenly, yet the sound was un affected. Sounds like a design fault built in to purpose. I guess that sounds crazy, but look at the reviews and judge for yourself.

      Cons

        Best Uses

          2 years and 7 months old - picture goes - blank screen. From reading other reports, seems to be a common fault. I have other LG products in the house and all work well - that's why I bought their TV - never again will I buy LG products.

                    Best Uses

                      Picture is bright and clear, very sharp. I have an antenna for local stations that is run through my computer and Dish satellite service. So, I have to use 2 of the inputs and both work beautifully and are easy to switch between. I wanted a 42" screen and they were hard to find. LG had one and I will go to them first the next time I buy this or any electronics or appliances. Pricing is very competitive and reasonable.
